Instant analysis: Ravens 20, Browns 14
Kevin Van Valkenburg: This is not exactly a team firing on all cylinders, is it? In the end, the Ravens secured a win, but this looked like a Week 2 performance, not a Week 16 performance, especially in a head-scratching second half. Baltimore has some real concerns headed into the final week of the season, including but not limited to: an injury to Marshall Yanda, a defense that is suddenly really vulnerable to the pass, a special teams that gives up too many big plays, and a quarterback still struggling with his accuracy. It's going to take one of the best performances of the year to beat the Bengals next week.
